In Person: Saturday, October 2 (8 a.m. check-in, 8:30 a.m. race start, 10 a.m. finish)
Virtual: Saturday, September 25 – Saturday, October 9
The NMU Alumni Association is excited to bring back the Wildcat Fun Run to Homecoming! This year, we are hosting a virtual and in-person 5K for the NMU community to show their Wildcat pride…near and far!
Registration is required. The cost is $25 for the NMU community (alumni, friends, parents, community members) and includes a Wildcat Fun Run t-shirt. Northern Michigan University will use a portion of the revenue generated by registrations for the event to support the NMU Food Pantry. NMU students can register for $15 (price includes a t-shirt) and student status will be verified at registration.
Virtual Fun Run Participants:
Participants can complete the 5K between Saturday, September 25, and Saturday, October 9. Once each participant completes the race, they will send a photo to email@example.com to be entered into a drawing to win a prize and be featured on our NMU Alumni Association social media channels.
In-Person Fun Run Participants:
The in-person Fun Run will take place on Saturday, October 2, on NMU’s campus, beginning and ending in the Academic Mall near the Wildcat Statue. Check-in begins at 8 a.m. where participants will receive a Wildcat Fun Run t-shirt and a bib number. The Fun Run begins at 8:30 a.m. and alumni, students, and the NMU community are welcome to run, walk or jog the 5K course. Water and a small snack will be provided for participants at the end of the run.
We are excited to bring back a Wildcat tradition and celebrate Homecoming 2021 both in-person and virtually with our NMU alumni and friends. #alwaysNMU #GoCats
